If an apple tree bears many fruits, it is not necessarily a reason for joy for the apple producer because too many apples do harm to the trees. In order to produce large Ambrosia™ apples with an intense taste, the apple tree needs a lot of energy. If too many apples hang on the branches, the tree is no longer able to provide all of them with enough nutrients.
Then thinning out by hand becomes necessary. The apple producer thus removes all small and excessive fruits by hand to allow the larger apples to grow better. This process of thinning out by hand increases the apples’ quality because we only want to harvest the best Ambrosia™ apples after all. Moreover, the apple producers bring their trees into shape in early summer. The young branches of the trees are bound down to optimize the tree’s growth and form.
